Description

The official companion podcast for the original Netflix film, Rustin. Each week, journalist and author Tre’vell Anderson builds a world of context by bringing you insights, anecdotes and behind-the-scenes perspectives through conversation with the artists who made the film. You'll also hear from scholars, journalists and activists as they wrestle with the legacy of Bayard Rustin, one of the civil rights movement's most complicated and compelling figures. He challenged authority, he never apologized for who he was, and despite making history he was nearly forgotten. Until now.

We also include bonus audio from a newly created walking tour of The National Mall in Washington D.C., commemorating Rustin's role in organizing the historic 1963 March on Washington.

Rustin premieres on Netflix on November 17.
